Self Generating Transducers are Called?
Active transducers work on self generating transducers, and these transducers work on the energy conversion principle. Thermocouples, Photovoltaic, and Piezoelectric, are types of active transducers.
Types of Transducers:
There are usually two types of transducers, as mentioned below-
- Input Transducer
- Output Transducer
Input Transducers are also treated as the sensor that takes in physical energy and converts it into a readable electrical signal. For example, A microphone converts physical sound waves into an electrical signal that can easily be transferred via wires.
An output transducer, also known as the actuator, takes electrical signals and converts them into other forms of energy. For example, A lamp converts electricity into a motor and a light; on the other hand, it also converts electricity into motion.
